Cap-Pelé, NB – It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Simonne Leger on Wednesday, April 12th, 2023 at the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Centre in Moncton at the age of 76.
Born in Shediac, she was the daughter of the late John and the late Léonie Gallant (Vautour).
Simonne will be sadly missed by her son, Eric (Vonda) Leger of Cap-Pelé; her daughter, Juliette (Mark Barrett) Arsenault of Shediac; her four grandchildren: Joel (Iza), Samuel (Megan), Danica, and Chanel (Kenny); her five great grandchildren: Jacob, Noah, Marco, Alondra, and Tania; her brother, Louis (Dolores) Gallant of Kitimat, BC; her three sisters: Catherine (late Alfred) Melanson of Sackville, Jeannita (late Lloyd) Campbell of Ontario, and Marguerite (late Georges) Greenwood of Ottawa; as well as several nieces and nephews.
Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her loving husband, Ulysse; her infant child, Joseph; her brother, Euclide (late Andréa) Gallant; and three sisters: Fernande (late Clifford) Fougère, Stella (late Arthur) Melanson, and Florine (late Georges) Spears.
Simonne volunteered at the Club d’Âge d’Or in Cap-Pelé for many years. She loved to play bingo, darts, bowling, and watching hockey games, specially the Toronto Maple Leafs. You could always find her at the beach where she would spend most of her time.
A special thank you to Linda LeBlanc for all the support you have provided, you have truly made a difference in our lives.
In respect to Simonne’s wishes there will be no visitations.
Funeral service will take place at 10:30am on Tuesday, April 18th, 2023 at Sainte-Thérèse d’Avila RC Church (2648 Acadie Road, Cap-Pelé).
Donations in memory of Simonne can be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association or to the Canadian Cancer Society of NB.
